Grants to USA nonprofits, for-profits, agencies, schools, and individuals for original and creative program ideas that will benefit eligible communities. Programs should focus on ideas that help communities appeal to talented people, ideas that will broaden economic prospects by breaking down divides and making new connections, and ideas that will spur connections and civic involvement. Finalists will be scored against five criteria: impact, innovation, inspiration, learning, and capacity.
1) Talent - Attract and keep talented people. Cities are stronger for everyone when they can attract and keep talented people. People, both younger and older, are returning to cities in record numbers, looking for the best of city life.
2) Opportunity - Expand economic prospects by breaking down divides and making new connections. To succeed, cities need to create places where people of diverse backgrounds and income levels can connect. They need to help workers connect with and flourish in today’s mobile and digital economy.
3) Engagement - Spur connection and civic involvement. Cities need spaces and programming that enable people to come together and help shape their city’s future. Engaged citizens are helping set the agenda for change in their city and connecting with their community to take concrete, collective action.
Your project must take place in or benefit one or more of the 26 Knight communities.
